Challenge me a Christmas Card with Ardyth Percy Robb

Welcome! Last year, I did a series on my blog where I asked people to set me a Christmas card challenge. This year, I'm stepping it up a notch, by asking crafty friends to join me!
How cool is this graphic!! My crafty friend, Kylie Purtell, made it especially for me! YAY!  You can check out her blog HERE.

Today, the challenge theme is a photo inspiration.
This quilt was made by Bronwyn Hooper and friends - it is a Melbourne Modern Quilt Guild  (MMQG) Travelling Quilt "Nordic". You can find out more about MMQG HERE, and more about this quilt and the Travelling Quilt Project HERE.

My special guest today is Ardyth Percy Robb - you can check out her take on this challenge HERE.

Here's my take:
I was inspired by graphic cards by Ardyth, and also by geometric cards by Laura Bassen. I used the Perfect Shapes stamp set from Simon Says Stamp, and the sentiment is from an old set by Hero Arts. I used inks from Hero Arts, and finished with a coat of Diamond Stickles on the open triangles. I love how the Stickles does different things on different colours of inks!

Thanks for visiting :)
